Today is Wednesday 30th November

The last day of the month, and December starts tomorrow.

The day is chilly and grey, but at least it’s not raining. No sign of the sun but washing had to be done so it was up to the launderette today to get it dry. It looks like their prices have been increased again as it is costing more for less time.
Roll on Summer!
I walked Maya up through the park to the launderette and was asked if I was a dog trainer and policewoman. I was wearing my hi-vis yellow coat and Maya was walking nicely beside me. The woman asked if mine was friendly and could she introduce her dog, an eight month old cockapoo the size of Mayas head. Not exactly nose to nose as the little one was a bit nervous and Maya wanted to play, but it wasn’t a bad encounter.

Getting her to walk nicely after was a bit of a battle though. She fights the haltie now, especially on a long walk, but we arrived OK and she was so glad to see Hubby.
We needed batteries for our central heating thermostat and timer, so I left Maya with the washing and Hubby, and walked up to the Co-op.

I heard my name and turned to see a fellow dog walker who has 2 greyhounds that love Maya and they are all quite sociable together. Her daughter has just had a baby boy and they were all surprised as he wasn’t due until just before Christmas! He weighed in at over 7lbs and mother and baby are home. I was shown pictures and he is so cute in his onesie! All is well and there was a lovely pic of a proud Dad holding his son when he was less than an hour old.

Take care and keep safe everyone.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Weather turned a bit chilly in my town as well. My son went to his school today wearing a sweater.

    As it’s just me at home, I still use my tumble-dryer after using the washing machine (except for woolens). I can honestly say that I’ve never used a laundrette.

    • We had a tumble drier years ago, but needs must and we had to save money so sold it to save on the bills. I put the loose change from my purse into a small bag for the laundry, so I don’t miss it. Even if we wanted one now, we literally have nowhere to put it.

    Sounds like Maya knows her own mind 😊

    I’m guessing Maya settled on the way home! We are bracing for more snow – the high today was 26F so quite cold…

    • We have snow forecast for the weekend. Camera will be at the ready for Maya’s first encounter with it! She seems better today so whatever upset her the other day has passed.
